Why Neuropathic Pain Hurts (Vid)

Today's YouTube video is a Ted Talk video about why pain hurts and this applies to neuropathic pain too. In fact, you'll learn more about how your nervous system responds to and delivers pain signals than from a host of text-only articles. There's a good chance you'll have a giggle too (something never to be turned down) because this guy is funny and knows how to engage an audience. If he can engage an audience of neuropathic patients (that's you, the readers), he's a freaking genius! he may use the word 'groovy' a bit too much but you'll forgive him. Give it a try, you're going to learn something about your brain and the nervous system for sure. Definitely worth 15 minutes of your time.

TEDxAdelaide - Lorimer Moseley - Why Things Hurt

TEDx Talks Uploaded on 21 Nov 2011 Why do we hurt?

Do we actually experience pain, or is it merely illusion?

In this video, Lorimer Moseley explores these questions, and position the pain that we feel as our bodies' way of protecting us from damaging tissues further. He also looks at what this might mean for those who suffer from chronic pain.
